oa Comparative and International Law Journal of Southern Africa - A move towards the inquisitorial process .

 

Abstract

The new Criminal Procedure Act, 51 of 1977, has been in operation in South Africa since 22 ]uly 1977. The new departure therein, by which the accused is invited to state his defence at the outset is to all accounts meeting with the success that was hoped for. The procedure represents a slight shift from the purely accusatiorial process to the inquisitorial one.
